8 Great Super Bowl Party Recipes

Let’s face it, Super Bowl Sunday is so much more than a football game. There’s the halftime show, infamous commercials, trash talking, and, of course, the food. Besides avoiding Super Bowl parties with obnoxious people, I know that you decide which one to go to based on how good the food will be. Don’t try to pretend that the snack and beverage selection doesn’t play a role in your decision making. We all know it does.

Since food plays such a crucial role in your experience Sunday, I’ve compiled an assortment of fabulous recipes that are sure to make any Super Bowl party a hit. You may not be able to control the outcome of the game (or other guests), but you can control the quality of your food. If you’re not hosting the party, then send this link to your friend who is. Hopefully they’ll get the hint.

From a chip dip to mouth-watering chicken wings and alcoholic concoctions, I’ve got you covered. Let’s start with a simple recipe and move our way to the more complex. Then, I’ll round out the article with some beverage selections.

1. Sesame Seed & Bulleit Bourbon Shrimp Recipe

Shrimp with Bulleit Bourbon Sesasme Sauce recipe for super bowl partyThis recipe is right up my alley. If presented the option of wings or shrimp, I’ll probably choose shrimp every time. Maybe it’s from all those years frequenting the beach.


  • Jumbo shrimps, peeled and deveined, about 1/2 pound per person
  • Bulleit bourbon
  • Sesame oil
  • Soy sauce
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Marinate jumbo shrimps in a marinade of equal parts Bulleit bourbon whiskey, sesame oil, and soy sauce for 1 ½ to 2 hours.
  2. Grill or broil for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
  3. Dip cooked shrimp into marinade, roll in sesame seeds to coat, and return to grill or broiler to cook until seeds are lightly browned, turning once.

Why it works: This is a great recipe to add diversity to your Super Bowl party menu. The jumbo shrimp covered in a Bulleit bourbon-based sesame sauce is a good alternative to the wings and perfect for popping after extra points. And shrimp are more manageable to eat than wings.

2. Addicting Chip Dip Recipe

This is affectionately known as Mrs. Ellonore’s dip in my family after coming to us by way of a friend. Watch out — it’s addicting.

  • 16 oz. sour cream (not light, lite, any other variation of the word)
  • 2 ½ teaspoons McCormick® Seasonall
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed (spice)
  • 1 teaspoon minced onions
Instructions: Mix all together in a small bowl and store in the refrigerator. If only 8 oz. sour cream containers are left at the grocery store, cut all the remaining ingredients in half.
Why it works: This easy-to-prepare dip recipe goes well not only with all sorts of chips (although Ruffles are used primarily in my house), it’s great with carrots and cucumbers as well. No Super Bowl party can be complete without this. Try it and you’ll understand.

3. Artichoke Bruschetta Recipe

This is a fancy name for sinful goodness. I can never just eat one or two (or three!). I’m not a huge fan of artichokes, but this recipe is goooooood.

  • 1 6 oz. jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained, patted dry and chopped
  • ½ cup grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped red onion
  • 5-6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 16 ½-inch thick French bread baguette rounds
Instructions: Place artichoke hearts, cheese and onion in small bowl. Add just enough mayonnaise to make a thick spread. Preheat broiler or oven. Put spread on bread rounds. Arrange bread rounds on baking sheet. Broil in oven until spread is heated through and begins to brown — about 2 minutes.
Why it works: Just look at what’s holding all the ingredients together. It really can’t be that good for you. Plus, it’s great finger food for a Super Bowl party.

4. Spicy Rum Footballs Recipe

Captain Morgan Rum BallsThis recipe makes my mouth water. Just look at the photo. Of course, I admit that I have a sweet tooth.


  • 1 ½ tablespoons dark rum, Captain Morgan
  • 1 pouch (17.5-ounce) sugar cookie mix, Betty Crocker®
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar, C&H®
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, McCormick®
  • 1½ teaspoons ground ginger, McCormick®
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves, McCormick®
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 stick (½ cup) butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon full-flavor molasses, Grandma’s®
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon, McCormick®
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, stir together cookie mix, flour, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, ginger, cloves, and pepper. Add butter, egg, and molasses, stirring with a wooden spoon until dough forms.
  2. Combine granulated sugar and cinnamon. Roll a heaping tablespoon of the dough into a ball. Roll dough ball in cinnamon-sugar.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll dough to 1⁄8-inch thickness. Use 2- to 3-inch football cookie cutter to cut out cookies.
  4. Place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.  Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks; let cool.

Why it works: These delicious small bites can get anyone through a nail-biting fourth quarter. They are also the perfect comfort dessert in case your team falls short in the big game.

5. Crown Wings Recipe

Crown Wings super bowl party recipeIs any Super Bowl party complete without wings? Single dad Ed Housewright, who has seen part of every Super Bowl,  doesn’t think so and neither do I. Haven’t tried using Crown Royal® to make your wings? Then it’s time to try it this year.


  • ⅓ cup Canadian whiskey, Crown Royal®
  • ⅓ cup honey, SueBee®
  • ¼ cup soy sauce, Kikkoman®
  • 2 tablespoons Thai chili sauce
  • 1 packet (0.75-ounce) stir-fry seasoning, Sun Bird®
  • 2 teaspoons crushed garlic, Gourmet Garden®
  • 4  pounds chicken wing drumettes
  • 3 scallions (green onions), finely chopped (optional)
  • ¼ cup chopped peanuts, Planters® (optional)
  1. In a large bowl, combine whisky, honey, soy sauce, chili sauce, stir-fry seasoning, and garlic. Add drumettes, tossing to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
  2. Set up grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Oil grate when ready to start cooking. Let drumettes stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Place on hot, oiled grill. Cook for 12 to 18 minutes or until cooked through, turning occasionally. Transfer chicken to a platter. Sprinkle with chopped scallions and peanuts (optional).

Why it works: Is there a better way to kick off the first quarter then bringing out a batch of Crown Wings? These drumettes will be the ultimate savory treat to start the party off right! Load up on napkins now, trust me.
